As afternoon shadows lengthen, temperatures drop and foliage of gold falls around us, Winter is close at hand.
The Kids on The Block Puppeteers survived a wild summer ride of shows, venturing across the Waterloo-Region and out even as far as the Greater Toronto Area to accommodate invitations!
In all, The Kids performed 26 shows to numerous day-camp and public library audiences, sharing their positive messages with well over 850 children, parents and counsellors. KOB also had the pleasure of presenting, once again, at the Kitchener Non-Violence Festival ~ an annual summer event we are always pleased to support. Most requested topics during the summer included: Blindness, Emotional Disabilities, Deafness, Feelings, Teasing and Bullying.
The Kids on The Block and their sponsors at The Independent Living Centre of Waterloo Region wish to thank the Waterloo and Kitchener city council’s who helped to line up and fund most of our summer shows, as well as all the camp volunteers and staff who accommodated our visits.
With the new school year in full swing, our puppeteers and puppets have been active in local schools during the past several weeks, with bookings already rolling in for 2018!
We have exciting new plans in the pipeline for next season, including a new brochure, the addition of some fun, live musical components to our performances and the development of a few new puppets who may be joining the Kids soon!
Teachers and community groups looking to have Kids On The Block out for a show between December 2017 and June 2018, contact us to book your shows soon! Calendar dates are booking up quickly!
